Dear Mini Community,

It is with great sadness, that for the first time in it's 35 year history, we must cancel the London To Brighton Mini Run.

2020 was one of the most difficult years any of us will have ever faced and unfortunately, 2021 does not seem to be getting any easier. As a Committee we have worked tirelessly with local authorities to bring you the event you all love, but, no matter how hard we worked, we were unable to secure the required permits for the 2021 London To Brighton Mini Run to go ahead due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

Throughout our work, our members and ticket holders safety had been and will always be our number one priority. 

Due to the nature of our event, despite extensive talks and planning, we are unable to make this event "Covid Secure". The London To Brighton Mini Run is a huge event on the mini calendar. Each year, we find ourselves limited on space, new requirements would mean parking cars at least a meter apart, ensuring every participant wears a mask and sanitised regularly, limiting the numbers of participants and hardest of all, controlling the amount of people entering Crystal Palace and Madeira Drive. We do not have the authority to close these public spaces on our event days, both areas remain open to the public. 

So what happens now?

We ask all ticket holders to return their ticket to us for a refund of the ticket cost (£30 Members / £35 Public). Please fill in the online application (link below) and then return return your ticket. Without your ticket or filling in the form it will not be possible to refund the cost. Refunds will be provided to the details provided with the ticket, so not necessarily the original purchaser or club lead booker.

It is your responsibility to make sure your ticket and form reaches us. For added security, please obtain proof of delivery, Royal Mail Recorded is recommended. Lost tickets will be unable to be refunded. It is also your responsibility to ensure the form is fully completed and filled in accurately.

If you returned your ticket under the ticket swap scheme, please fill in the form with "Ticket Swap" instead of a ticket number when requested.

If you wish too, you can donate your ticket cost to our nominated charities - PHAB, Canine Partners and The Diamond Centre, please select this option on the form.

Please return your ticket - LSMOC Ticket Returns, PO BOX 898, Morden, Surrey, SM4 4QL

For any questions or queries please email

Please bear with us. This is not something we have had to do before and our team is small. Once your ticket and form have been received, you will not receive an email confirming your refund, so please check your account regularly. Refunds are paid by bank transfer only. Tickets will be collected from our PO BOX weekly. Please do not email regarding your refund unless you have not received it within 14 working days (Not including weekends) from the date of delivery. 

We understand this is incredibly disappointing, but your safety is paramount. 

Thank you for your support and understanding.


Application Deadline 1st July
